Eva E. (Houck) Becker, 98, wife of the late Robert S. Becker, passed away Saturday February 2, 2019 at the Pottstown Hospital.
Eva was a longtime resident of North Coventry until 1997 when she moved to Frederick Living. She was born in Pottstown on March 4, 1920 to Howard and Eva (Cragg) Houck. Since Eva’s mother passed away during childbirth, she was raised by her grandmother Linna (Nason) Cragg of Barre, Vermont, until she was four years old. In 1924 Howard married Muriel Cragg, who was the person Eva always thought of as her mother.
Eva was married to Robert S. Becker from 1941 until his death in 1995. While her husband served in the Army during WWII, Eva was employed as a laboratory technician at Doehler Jarvis in Pottstown. She later worked at other local companies, including Honeywell, Metal Welding, Sturgis Oil, and Fegley Distributers.
Eva is survived by a son Alan Becker and his wife Sally of Coopersburg; two granddaughters Jennifer Wagner wife of Craig of Allentown, and Tiffany Becker of Coopersburg; two great granddaughters Brooke and Hailey Wagner; and a sister Marjorie Moyer wife of George Moyer of Narvon.
Interment will be held privately. Catagnus Funeral Home & Cremation Center, Inc., 711 N. Franklin St., Pottstown is in charge of arrangements.
